    Unopened – I wonder if it’s still good.

    Lizzie Ehrenhalt reply on April 19th, 2012:

    It would certainly be a credit to the Norwich Pharmacal Company if it were, but at this point I think a dose from this bottle would cause an upset stomach sooner than cure it.

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I
    get several emails with the same comment. Is there any way you can
    remove me from that service? Thanks a lot!
